HC Deb 23 March 1885 vol 296 cc229-30

asked the Junior Lord of the Treasury, Whether he would use his influence with the Chief Commissioner of Works, to confer a favour on many Members of the House, by removing the large pictures in the Smoking Room, and to substitute in their place large maps of different portions of Her Majesty's Empire?


The First Commissioner would have no objection to comply with the wish of the hon. Member provided that there was a general desire among hon. Members to substitute maps for the pictures now in the Smoking Room. But it does not appear that there is such a desire.
